Through a Glass Darkly
by Donna Leon
Donna Leon’s millions of fans will appreciate this new crime novel in her series featuring Commissario Brunetti and the darker side of Venice.
Through a Glass Darkly begins on a luminous spring day in Venice, when Brunette and Inspectore Vianello take a break from the Questura to come to the rescue of Vianello’s friend, Marco Ribetti. Ribetti has been arrested while protesting against chemical pollution of the Venetian lagoon, then has to face the fury of his father-in-law, owner of a glass factory on the island of Murano.
Despite being the obvious candidate as murder victim, it is not Ribetti who uncovered the guilty secret of the polluting glass foundries of Murano, nor he whose body is found dead in front of the furnaces which constantly burn at 1400 degrees.
In paperback, priced at 12 euros.
